At the start of the 2004-05 school year, the Seymour Community School began using a computerized accounting system for the district breakfast/hot lunch program. This was done to upgrade district record keeping in accordance with State of Iowa record requirement mandates. It will also help reduce the number of lost and washed tickets.
Students and parents are asked to keep lunch accounts current. Balances can be checked in the office or can be accessed through the web-based on-line student personal account information network. Student/family on-line account passwords are issued at the start of each school year. Questions, please contact the central office.
Each student/faculty member will be issued an ID number. Each family will have a “family account” to which they can make deposits. Every student/faculty member in a family will be able to use from the family account. All items available through the hot lunch program will be able to be deducted from the family account. This will include breakfast, lunch, ice cream, extra milk at lunch, milk in the afternoon for elementary, an extra main dish (when available), and any ala carte items sold during lunch (i.e. cookies, cinnamon rolls).
Parents wanting their children to have individual accounts, rather than a family account, need to make that choice known at registration time.
A student’s ID number will be coded into the system upon any deposit being made into their account or sale coming from their account. Upon request, a print out can be made showing transactions made by any individual or family.
When an account balance reaches approximately $4.00, the student/faculty member will be notified. The account will be allowed run a negative balance up to $7.00. Beyond that negative amount, the student/faculty members on that account will no longer be able to charge or purchase any item until a deposit is made into their account.
The fees for the hot lunch program for the 2009-2010 year have increased slightly. The program meal fees are as follows:
Student lunch$1.75 [Elem.-$1.55]Adult lunch$2.25
